Lovebites - Heavy Metal Never Dies Artwork

Keeping with their blistering cadence of providing high quality heavy metal on a yearly basis, Japan’s front runners for the “New Wave of Japanese Heavy Metal” Lovebites will release their latest concert production, “Heavy Metal Never Dies” on September 29th! Filmed in Tokyo, this latest release features more than 2 hours of music, with some never before played live songs, and amazing production quality, once again raising their standard “higher and higher.”

The concert was originally scheduled for January 31st, 2021, but was postponed and rescheduled for March 26th, 2021 due to the spread of COVID-19. The Ride for Vengeance 2021 tour in itself was almost a miracle as no sooner did Lovebites do their final show of the tour on April 2nd in Osaka, another emergency declaration was declared for Osaka and Tokyo not too long after.
